    Perhaps we should list down the agenda of what to talk about. It might be helpful in the preparations don't you think?

    Hope this helps
    I'm sure a lot are doing this. rest assured that less than 3/4 of those that queued will turn up. Too bad I have something on this wed already. All the best for the meeting. I sure hope there is a 2nd meeting for me to attend.

    Hi Guys, to remind everyone of an earlier ppost, these are some of the issues you want to think about and prepare for before the meeting. Please see below

    1. Your name, your business name, how many weddings you shoot and if you are open enough, what is your average billing [this enables us to place a relevance to the market you are serving]
    2. What are the biggest challenges facing your company? What is your target? I am guessing everyone probably wants to discuss the extremely low rates in our market and what we can do about it. I am guessing this will take up most of our time.
    3. What could the possible solutions be? Please come with solutions and we can discuss viability and implementation
    4. What ideas do you have for photographers as a group to co-operate with each other? What are possible avenues we can help one another with? Ie, Anyway for us to do group advertising to raise our profile to a level in which we are the first stop for wedding couples? Hint, I'm thinking of a group site and then advertising as a group....find out more tomorrow.

    Anyway willing to help to take minutes of the meeting so we can post the issues and resolutions up here for people to read?

    Hi guys,

    Maybe I could help clarify alittle on this meeting session.
    The purpose of this meeting is really more for photographers who are already shooting weddings fulltime or parttime and want to know how we could synergize and work together to help give the wedding industry alittle "UMMPH".

    There'd been a couple of emails that enquiried if this is a "How to..." workshop. Kuang would be glad to conduct a session like this on a different day.

    so pardon me for being a little bit blunt ya. don't wish for any of you guys who might have had the misconception that this is a "how to.." workshop. also the location we're meeting up is gonna really be alittle bit cramped out now *hope you guys don't mind sitting on the floor =) *.

    I would like to appreciate kuang for organising this event also, knowing that he's coming out $ka chingg$ from his own to book the place along with refreshments for us =) . Hope to meet all you guys there tomorrow!

    Hi guys,

    I am terribly sorry but I would not be able to join you guys for this meetup. I have some urgent matters to attend to.

    Personally, I feel that its a great effort to organise a get together as such and I really do wish I get to meetup with some of you over time.

    Anyways, I am pretty confident we will have another meet up.

    Cheers and all the best!

    Sorry no offence, just wondering whether it will be alright to collect information like how many jobs that a photographer is doing per year, their income and so on, doesn't really help in working together rather than fighting each others?

    Actually what CKuang suggest about advertising together is a good idea for which I believed some people are already doing that on magazine and stuff like that.

    And to be honest in my opinion there are different market segments in Singapore, for example, people who can afford to pay big bucks for their wedding, of course people who cannot afford and people who is not willing to or do not think its worth the money. Some even wants it for free. Ultimately it depends on which market are you targeting on, I don't think the low rate issue really matter to me. At the end it is what you pay and what you get. Couple can't be paying S$100 to S$200 and expecting S$2k to S$3k quality right? This is exactly what I mean. How about those long time photographers who still tag along with bridal shop and probably charging S$300 whole day including film and photo developing?

    Even if we were to advertise together or what, as long as we have our own company or our own brandname to keep, there will never be possible to work together, coz in fact business is a war, there will have no peace in war, unless all are in the same company. Think you know what I mean hehe :P

    Feel free to state your opinion, this is just my opinion.

    Why must think it as a war?

    Why must we fight against each other?

    Why don't we put the efforts of fighting against each other for better uses?

    Don't we all know that at the end of a war, no one is winner?


    I come in peace, and I'm a small fly.
